I had a good chunk of a long entry written that I was working on in little bits throughout the day and I just somehow managed to close it on myself without saving it so I lost it all.
I am ridiculously annoyed with this, and it especially sucks because what I had written was nice and chipper. I am too annoyed to try to rethink about and recreate what I wrote so I’m going to condense about here. It’s unfortunate because what I wrote before was more exciting than how I’m about to write it now. Then again, there will be slightly less writing so you’ll have to read slightly less of my rambling. There are benefits to all disappointments, right? ;)
Save your drafts, save your drafts!
Anyway, here we are in 2009.
This is what I ate on my last day of 2008:
Scrambled eggs and yogurt with frozen banana slices. I hadn’t had a good ol’ scrambled egg in ages. I almost regretted adding the ketchup though, for some reason it was tasting too sweet…?
Then I made chocolate pretzel bark in order to use up the rest of the condensed milk sitting in my fridge from Christmas baking. This was made using condensed milk, semisweet and milk chocolate chips, pretzel sticks, dried cranberries and leftover graham crumbs/oats from the date squares I made for xmas.
Later on in the day I did a heart pumping treadmill run and an arm-defining exercise ball pushup session (gotta maximize the muscle definition for dress wearing!). Then I showered and threw together a quick dinner, which I munched on while painting my nails. The bigger priority was clearly the nails.
Then I took my sweet old time getting ready and headed over to my friend’s where we:
Then finally headed to
Unfortunate to say though, but I think we just should have stayed in. It was a heck of a lot more fun before the club than actually at the club.
There were hardly any people there. I’ve never seen it so empty. I guess no one wanted to pay the entrance price they were asking (which was much too much for that club), and to really rub salt into the wound, the club right next door (although smaller) was packed, at capacity. Clearly we chose the wrong place to go.
Midnight was hardly acknowledged, we didn’t dance once, I didn’t even take my coat off because I was cold the whole time, my friend got sick so I had to contend with her and then she had to head home early, and my other friends were having a little too much fun with a group of sketchy and pathetic guys who were immature and gross to boot.
They also left early. I wasn’t ready to go home (it was NEW YEARS, come on!) so I stood around and chatted with one of the bouncers I know there while he manned the door until the bar was closed and everyone was heading out by around 3:30. How’s that for an exciting New Years right?
It was an improvement from last year. Hardly, but an improvement nonetheless so I’ll take it. As lame as it was, I honestly wasn’t too torn up about it. I guess I didn’t really have the highest expectations to begin with.
I had fun dressing up anyway. :)
How was everyone else’s New Years? Hopefully plenty exciting with blow horns and paper hats?! I’m behind on blog reading but I’ll be sure to catch up as soon as I can!
This is already insanely long so here’s a simple and quick recap of the eats for the past two days:
Kraft Dinner (!!) with tuna and tomatoes.
I hadn’t had KD in ages and had a crazy craving for it. Mmmmm.
Spinach with dijon
Waffle with banana, strawberry, SF syrup and strained yogurt
PHEW. I’m exhausted now. Hope you all somehow survived this monster post. And your New Years ;)
I’m off to start some blog reading catch up now!
